2012 donum, pinot noir, russian river valley
Why We're Buying
The Donum Pinot Noir shows why the Russian River Valley is one of the most acclaimed wine regions in the United States. This red wine benefits from a Mediterranean climate, ample sunshine, and supportive soil. The result is a pinot noir with a weighty presence and an equally hefty price tag.
Offers depth, richness, complexity and length, with tiers of vibrant raspberry, anise and blackberry. Gains depth and traction, ending with gripping tannins that hold the flavors in place. Toasty oak nuances show on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2023.
Warmly steeped in black tea and cinnamon-cola, this is a dark purple-hued wine, full bodied and expansive on the palate in red and black berry. A streak of black pepper pulses throughout the wine’s big-boned structure. Earthy and balanced, it will benefit with time, decanted or cellared through 2020. Cellar Selection
